Le Journal de la Vendée
Company:Conseil Général de la Vendée
Publications / Projects:Le Journal de la Vendée

““After a short time to get familiar with K2, the editors soon started to save much time and to gain a great flexibility to react to last-minute editorial changes. All together, the system has allowed us to improve the security in the production process, and the control and approval steps are now well organized, as the files are all stored in the database. Stories do not get lost on a file server anymore. Moreover, any editor has the opportunity to make his story shorter or longer by himself whenever needed, through remote work if necessary, which is also a very interesting feature.””

Ludovic Robet, chief editor

Famous for its beaches at the Atlantic Ocean, the French Department Vendée has also chosen to switch the production of its bi-weekly magazine "Le Journal de la Vendée” to vjoon K2. Its publisher, the administrative “conseil general” lays the editorial focus on news and stories of the region Vendée, one of the editorial highlights being the “Vendée Globe Challenge” sailing race around the world.

Having worked for the weekly regional press prior to his position as Chief Editor, Robet initiated the selection of a professional publishing system. The goal was to optimize the production of its team with vjoon K2, which is perfectly suited for all kinds of collaborative work between designers and editors. After a few days of training, production of “Le Journal de la Vendée” went live with K2 for regular issues as well as special editions for the 2009 “Vendée Globe Challenge”.
